I never stayed here, but I saw some good reviews in "HostelWorld", so I thought it would be good to put it here, as a good backpackers choice in the very heart of Madrid.
The place is unbeatable, the street Montera used to be the red district of Madrid but now there are many police cars parked there often, so the ladies have moved to safer places...
I really enjoyed my stay here and the food was good. It was a clean hotel. A little far away from the center of Madrid but I don't think you will get the same quality of hotel for the same price at the center fo Madrid.
It's the common trade off you have to decide on all the time!!!
Located 30 minutes by bus from Madrid’s center, in the neighboring city of Torrejon de Ardoz, the Hotel Torre Hogar is a 4-star hotel. There is a large meeting room/bar next to reception, and a newly-installed weight room on one of the upper floors. The rooms and the breakfast area are large and also newly renovated. There is a dance club next door, along with shopping in stores along the same street. Access to Madrid center at the nearby train station (about 5 min. walk).
My Mum's friend was here adn it's clean and cheap.
It's 2 minutesPuerta del Sol. The workers or owners are very nice, they help a lot!
it can be cheap depends on teh nights you are staying!
It has been a long time since I need a hotel in Madrid for myself (I think for Depeche mode concert in 2001 or 2002) as my best friend was living there and now my family. so when a friend asked to find some offers for her, i got shock of how much prices had gone up (I used always bancotel for 50 euros night)
So here as some webs where you can find good offers.
Hope it helps!

If you're ever going to rent or buy a place in Madrid, my advice is get an apt with a terrace!
There are 2 classical Top Hotels in Madrid and both are in the same Square (Canovas del Castill Sq, where Neptune Fountain is).
The Palace is where most of official events, high level meetings and so take place. It's more modern, recently refurbished. Well, I've never been to any of these 2, but this is what I heard...
"Hostales" in Spain are family run pensions, usually located in the historic city centre offering simple rooms for a very good price.
They don't offer that you can find in hotels (room service, halls, breakfast...) but provide a simple clean accomodation at walking distance to the main attractions. Ideal for those on a budget who want the accomodation just to sleep and have a shower...
You will find a list of hostales with direct links (for reservations...) at:
A very cheap option, in the maze of old streets north of the Gran Vía.
Its a hostal. There is no swiming pool, great views, etc.., but it isnt a noisy surroundings.
The rooms and the bathrooms are small.
This hostal is extremely central, just 5 minutes away from Plaza Espana and Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor.
There is no curfew, kind staff, clean rooms with nice furniture and includes tv.
There is no a/c, safe and telephone in the rooms.
Double from 36 euro,
Single from 30 euro
The small Hostal is basic and clean. The owners are friendly, but don´t speak much english. They have rooms either with private or shared bath. Compared to its central location it is very quiet.
I haven't been in this nice medium 3 stars hotel, but a friend was and said it was Ok. It has been recently refurbished and is really centrally located, 100 metres from Puerta del Sol, 30 metres from Metro Sevilla.
They use to have offers in internet.
La Casona de Eboli is a place to enjoy with the five senses, very tranquil and magic. Every detail has been selected with delicacy and good taste of her owner, Rosina. She has built this small hotel with 5 rooms to offer her good taste for decoration, well-being and even in the cuisine, she is an artist!
The service is very good, both Rosina and Javier, make your stay a moment to remember.
The hotel at the moment have 5 rooms, however, they are accommodating a new one (soon will be listed in their website). All rooms are well equipped and with bathroom en-suite. There is wifi connection in all the hotel.
There is also a nice space of spa, sauna and whirlpool shower for those who want to release any stress.
Rosina and Javier offer different packs depending on the type of you stay. It is all listed in the web page of their hotel.
I love this place, for me is like a bubble, far from Madrid at 42km. Near of the airport and R-2 motorway.
I have been several times alone in the Tulip room and sometime with my partner in La claraboya room. Both very nice rooms. The breakfast is delicious, very abundant.
They offer as well the service of restaurant in the hotel, with some dishes to select from 4 starters, 4 mains and some deserts. Everything is traditional and creative cuisine by Rosina. Very very nice.
We did enjoyed the service of the spa and in summer the dinner in the garden, in winter a nice chill out in the living-room with the fireplace.
This is a place for the five senses :)
This brand new backpackers hostel is located in a classical Madrid neighbourhood: Malasaña, not far from the touristic centre, in a typical madridian building (see photo).

If you are staying in Madrid for at least 1 week and wanna feel more at home than in a hotel, you can take a look at these apartments in a very central location (near Gran Via and Sol).

There are two youth hostels in Madrid.
One of them is at the Casa de Campo, in a big "park" west of manzanares river, and not very safe at night, it has metro.
The otherone is better and closer to the center located at the Princesa area, it has a lot of buses going every where and not far frm moncloa where buses to El Escorial and the "sierra" leaves, also is close to metro
